The initiative Women in Mathematics of South-Eastern Europe, aiming at promoting the role of female mathematicians, started in Dec 2020, when the inaugural conference took place. We intend to make these conferences annual.
Dr. Andrey Bengus-Lasnier will deliver a series of lectures organized by ICMS (about 8 lectures) on: Introduction to Resolution of Singularities The course topic is fundamental to algebraic geometry. The course is accessible to mathematics students with a background in commutative algebra. The first lecture is on November 22 at 1:30 p.m. in room 403 of IMI-BAN.

The International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia) at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences presents ICMS Colloquium June 28, 2022, 2:00 pm (EEST, Sofia time) IMI-BAS, Hall 403 Ludmila Kamenova Stony Brook University Finiteness results for hyperkaehler manifolds In this talk we are going to show that there are finitely many deformation types of hyperkaehler manifolds with fixed topological invariants such as the Fujiki constant and the discriminant of the BBF form. For hyperkaehler manifolds that admit a fibration structure it is enough to fix the degree of the polarization on the general fiber in order to obtain a finiteness result.
The International Center for Mathematical Sciences received a three-year grant from Simons Foundation
The good news was announced personally by Prof. Yuri Tschinkel, Director of Mathematics and Physical Sciences division of Simons Foundation, during his visit to Sofia. The Foundation funded a project of the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics for a period of three years. The funds will be used to organize international scientific forums with the participation of world-renowned and established mathematicians, to open new positions for researchers and to support scientists from Ukraine and other countries.
The International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia is organizing for a second consecutive year a meeting of young Bulgarian mathematicians from around the world. The conference will take place at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IMI-BAS) on June 13 – 14, 2022.
This conference will serve as a unique opportunity for the consolidation of our efforts and lifting our activities to the next level.
The International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia) at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences presents ICMS Colloquium May 17, 2022, 2:00 pm (EEST, UTC+3), IMI-BAS, Hall 403 Vladimir D. Tonchev, Michigan Technological University Coding Theory, Combinatorial Designs, and Finite Geometry Abstract. Error-correcting codes are used to protect data from random errors in satellite and wireless communication systems, audio and video recording devices, and data storage devices. A large class of codes with a wide range of applications are based on finite geometry. The most notable example of such codes are the Reed-Muller codes that are being used in deep space and mobile communications. The subject of this talk is a class of codes based on combinatorial designs. These combinatorial codes possess remarkable error-correction [...]
February 8, 2022, marks the 90th anniversary of the birth of Blagovest Sendov. He passed away on January 19, 2020, shortly before reaching the age of 88. The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics will commemorate the 90th anniversary of the birth of Prof. Sendov with the talk by Edward Saff from Vanderbilt University, USA - Discretizing Manifolds with Minimal Energy. A talk in commemoration of B. Sendov's 90th birth date.
The International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia) and the Institute of the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas Consortium (IMSAC) presents Consortium Distinguished Lecture Series November 8 and 10, 2021, 5:00 pm (EEST, Sofia time, UTC+2) IMSA-Miami, via Zoom Prof. Dennis Gaitsgory will deliver a lecture on Geometric Langlands Prof. Gaitsgory is known for his work on the geometric Langlands program. Among his achievements are the proofs of the geometric Langlands conjecture for finite fields (joint with E. Frenkel and K. Vilonen) and for the field of complex numbers. Prof. Gaitsgory was awarded with the Prize of the European Mathematical Society (2000) and the AMS Chevalley Prize (2018). Abstract: We will start these series by reviewing the general framework of geometric Langlands correspondence, [...]
